So as must of you have noticed, I haven't been posting much at all and I am so sorry for that. I had hit a reading slump and a blogging slump and had to take a bit of time off. But I'm back and have huge plans to keep the blogging and books coming. So with that being said, let's see how the past week went for me and check out what I plan on reading this week. Also later this week I'll be posting some of my plans for 2014 for the blog and other things as well so stay tuned.
This past week I only reading one book. Yep reading slump, but it's okay I'm getting back in the grove of things. So here is the book I read this past week.
When newly-single Rachel Tanner finds out that pro pitcher Kevin Ganlin has come home to recover from an injury, her heart skips a beat. She’s loved him from afar since her preteen years, never bold enough to let him know. Kevin is less than thrilled when Rachel shows up at his doorstep. She’s his best friend’s little sister and officially off limits. Besides, he’s staring early retirement in the face, a one-man pity-party with no interest in anything more serious than quick flings on the road. Until an icy mishap lands Rachel cozied up on his sofa, irresistible in his practice sweats. A little game of Truth or Truth reveals much more than Rachel had ever dared to hope and leads to a midnight make-out session that leaves them both panting. But can she trust that he’s truly changed his ways? This Christmas, Kevin will do whatever it takes to make Rachel understand she’s the only one for him.
I will be posting my review of Christmas Curveball later this week and can't wait to share the thoughts on this book with all of you. I read this book mainly because I needed something light and fluffy. Plus its the perfect Christmas book to read!
So let's move on to my To Read List for this week. I have set aside two books that I want to read this week. Both are Christmas stories and I'm really excited to read them.
Every Christmas, Hannah Jones makes it her mission to give her hometown the perfect pageant. Even malfunctioning inflatable Santas and lost students can't stop the self-proclaimed Miss Holiday. But the teacher may have met her mismatch in sexy but antisocial tree farmer Griff Green. Hannah's been lusting after her new neighbor for months—and she's determined to melt his heart by being naughty as well as nice… He may sell trees, but Griff doesn't do Christmas. He's known as the town humbug—and he likes it that way. Which is why he's been avoiding Hannah, despite the sexy visions of her that have been dancing through his head. When a surprise visit leads to a passionate kiss, he can't deny the attraction any longer. When Hannah discovers Griff isn't the Scrooge he pretends to be—and she exposes his secret to the whole town—it may take a holiday miracle for their budding relationship to survive into the new year.
And for my Short Story Saturday post for the week I'm going to read:
AN ORIGINAL SHORT STORY FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF THE NOVELS THE OPPOSITE OF ME AND THE UPCOMING SKIPPING A BEAT . . . Thirty-year-old Elise Andrews couldn’t bring herself to marry Griffin, her childhood friend turned sweetheart, so she let him walk away. Eight months after their breakup, she arrives in her hometown of Chicago on Christmas Eve and hears a voice from the past calling her name in the grocery store. It’s Griffin’s mother, Janice, who invites Elise over for a neighborhood gathering of eggnog and carols. Walking into Janice’s house sends Elise tumbling headlong into memories of her relationship with Griffin—and with Janice, who exudes the kind of warmth Elise ached for after her own mom passed away when she was six. But Griffin has moved on, and suddenly Elise doubts her decision to give him up and lose her chance at being folded into his wonderful family. Confused and reeling, she goes in search of an answer to a universal question: How do we say good-bye to people we’ve loved without losing everything they’ve meant to us? Heartwarming and witty, All Is Bright is a charming story about coming home for the holidays—and finding gifts in the most unexpected of places.
So there you have it. My Weekly wrap up and my to be read for this upcoming week. What are you reading this week???
